Strollercise Basildon

Strollercise was created by Samantha Williams in March 2016.

Its a Dance / Fitness programme which takes its name from the girls ‘strolling’ in R&R clubs in the ‘50’s and, as we do 6,000-7,000 steps in our 1 hour class, it became a form of exercise, hence 'Strollercise’ (6,000 steps is equal to walking 3 miles.)

When hitting the gym is just too much but you still want some structured enjoyable exercise - Strollercise could be just what you need. 

Caters for all abilities including both men and women. Laindon's local coach Lyndsey will guide you through the simple steps to success and ultimately a fitter lifestyle.

For more details you can visit Lindsey's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1324519984379637/members or contact her on the details below.
